Pavstache Getting Serious Award Consideration

Carl Pavano may be adding a piece of hardware to his mantle in the very near future. No, not an American League Cy Young Award ... that’s minor compared to this.

Are there any early frontrunners or darkhorses for The Goulet in 2010, even though you’ve just opened up nominations?

Yeah, there’s a couple that I can think of. One would be [Minnesota Twins pitcher] Carl Pavano. Carl Pavano grew a mustache this year and has had one of the best seasons of his career after being thought of as washed up and, really, soon to be out of baseball. It’s really once again demonstrated that the ultimate performance enhancer is indeed the mustache on the athletic playing field.

Really, I have nothing else to add here. Except “GO PAVSTACHE!”
